"Influence of carbon doping on the reversible magnetization of MgB2 single crystals";
Physica C: Superconductivity and its Applications,
The reversible magnetization of Mg(B1 xCx)2 single crystals with varying carbon content (x = 0-0.095) was measured by SQUID
magnetometry. It was found to be strongly influenced by the two-band character of this material. At low magnetic fields charge carriers
of both bands contribute to superconductivity and to diamagnetism. At high fields the p-band is suppressed and the r-band mainly determines
the magnetization. This allows us to extract information on both bands by analyzing the reversible magnetization in terms of two
band Ginzburg-Landau (GL) theory. The ``intrinsic´´ magnetic penetration increases in both bands with increasing carbon content, but the r-band remains crucial for the upper critical field. Changes in the field dependence of the resulting ``effective´´ penetration depth by carbon doping are discussed.
